Free-form shape design using triangulated surfaces
TLDR
We present an approach to modeling with truly mutable yet completely controllable free-form surfaces of arbitrary topology, bridging the gap between patch-based and particle-based representations. Expand

Fast animation and control of nonrigid structures
TLDR
We describe a fast method for creating physically based animation of non-rigid objects that deform in a geometrically simple but physically correct way. Expand

Substrate specificity and kinetics for VP14, a carotenoid cleavage dioxygenase in the ABA biosynthetic pathway.
The plant growth regulator, abscisic acid (ABA), is synthesized via the oxidative cleavage of an epoxy-carotenoid. Specifically, a double bond is cleaved by molecular oxygen and an aldehyde is formedExpand

Interactive dynamics
TLDR
We present a mathematical and computational formulation for constrained dynamics that makes this possible, allowing encapsulated objects, constraints, and forces to be combined dynamically and simulated efficiently. Expand

Corporate Volunteerism, the Experience of Self-Integrity, and Organizational Commitment: Evidence from the Field
We examined the relationship between the motives underlying employees’ participation in corporate-sponsored volunteerism and their organizational commitment. In both a pilot study and in the mainExpand

Electrophysiological effects of ryanodine derivatives on the sheep cardiac sarcoplasmic reticulum calcium-release channel.
We have examined the effects of a number of derivatives of ryanodine on K+ conduction in the Ca2+ release channel purified from sheep cardiac sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR). In a fashion comparable toExpand

Convergence of heat shock protein 90 with ubiquitin in filamentous alpha-synuclein inclusions of alpha-synucleinopathies.
Heat shock proteins (Hsps) facilitate refolding of denatured polypeptides, but there is limited understanding about their roles in neurodegenerative diseases characterized by misfolded proteins.Expand

Interactions of a Reversible Ryanoid (21-Amino-9α-Hydroxy-Ryanodine) with Single Sheep Cardiac Ryanodine Receptor Channels
The binding of ryanodine to a high affinity site on the sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+-release channel results in a dramatic alteration in both gating and ion handling; the channel enters a high openExpand

Structural factors that determine the ability of adenosine and related compounds to activate the cardiac ryanodine receptor
The effects of adenosine and adenine on the gating of native sheep cardiac ryanodine receptor (RyR) channels were investigated. By examining the mechanisms underlying channel activation and by usingExpand
